It has come to my attention that Michael Schaefer, known as Flying Crane received his shodan in kenpo roughly 18 years ago. He recently began training after a 17 year absence with Ted Sumner in San Jose, CA, driving 100 miles roundtrip 2-3 times each week to train. This past Saturday, by his own choice, he underwent a grueling 5-hour shodan test, and has now been awarded a shodan in Tracy's Kenpo from 9th dan Ted Sumner at the San Jose Kenpo dojo. Congratulations, Michael, to you, your compatriots, and your teacher. Well done.
